What's wrong with answering the questions that have been asked here, by responding here ?

You managed to check with all 14 in the last 10 minutes ?

Don't be ashamed to post on an open forum, people really are waiting for you to answer all the questions they have asked you.

Right you guys! I've just found out that you lot are generally, no matter what happens,   a waste of my time.

Happy whatever it is you do!

By the way anyone who dissed the GBR are scumbuckets!

You are wasting everyone's time by failing to answer the questions people have asked you


And no one else has been reduced to name calling

Ran 5 miles

Took my car in for service

Baked a ginger cake

And watched some TV

I also watched someone on the Internet do everything he could to avoid answering questions people had asked him

But I haven't denigrated it, I have asked questions

I haven't accused you of making any money out of organising the event.

All I have done is ask, why won't you answer the questions people have asked, and I suppose now I should ask why you have been reduced to name calling ?

Sometimes it is better to answer the questions, rather than make people wonder if you have something to hide, Not you understand that I am accusing you of hiding anything

So answering valid questions is a waste of your time?  

It didn't take long for you to change from cheerful enthusiasm to abusive under a little pressure.  I was prepared to give your motives the benefit of the doubt, but now I really do think you are hiding something.  If that makes me a "scumbucket" then so be it.

A new runner myself it appears that in your world new runners/posters are not welcome. I thought it was a welcoming community As you don't like people who are new to running posting I am a little apprehensive as to whether to dare venture a comment!

....and I call bullshit, since you only started posting about this event.  Jog on.

Poly.are you coming on here trying to say you have found a brilliant race that we might be interested in......whilst all the time forgetting to mention that you are the organiser....

If you come on here and from the start are being underhand then immediately people will be suspicious.

If you then try to evade questions and then start insulting people then its not great...

 

event organisers are not allowed to come on here in general to promote their own races.....

as they should be paying RW to promote their races...which is how RW have the money to keep the forums going.........]

as a business person the prganiser should appreicate that its not god form to avoid paying other businesses their dues

Oh, I so hope I have not made a silly mistake entering this.  I now wished I hadn't entered off the back of a race a high and had thought it through a bit more. What would happen if I didn't run due to something cropping up (it might).

This event appears to have been postponed until 2014 according to an email I have received from the organisers. Hey ho.

Shame, the Romanians' record is safe for another year then.

25/04/2013 at 14:28

oh dear - I seen the link at the beginning and put a post on my running club website about it. After reading the last 4 pages, I think I better go and delete...

Such a shame, as I'm gutted I missed out on the one that followed the Torch relay last year and it's a great idea but surely would need a massive company / sponsor to actually work.

I have just looked at his runsunday website and it looks like a parkrun type event. Why not just set up a parkrun and be part of that organisation instead of trying to reinvent the wheel?

If the runsunday event is genuine, then I would say it is someone being overambitious and out of their depth (running before you can walk).

Geniune or dodgy? I would stay well clear either way.

Hi just a quick post to say I feel Raining Hands has been getting some unfair criticism. I have on occasion run at his Runsunday event, and you couldn't get a more supportive, enthusiastic person who clearly just loves running. He hasn't asked me to come on here and I'm not him, or his missus! I just felt like he needed a positive word and unless my people judgement skills are miles off he is most certainly doing this for the right reasons. Cheers!

I thought it had been postponed !  Although his web site doesn't say so

The only criticism has been in his failure to answer any of the questions he has been asked. 

24/06/2013 at 19:01

I was going to say well done then I searched and saw its next year. Then I saw a lot of follish people saying what people do is garbage..I'm new but why be so stupid!

I'm not on your path but will shout for you.

Hey raininghansd! You go for for it!

Yet another 3 post wonder pops up to plug this rubbish 

24/06/2013 at 21:18
Can't believe I've missed this thread. Brilliant reading, especially the one post wonders who are all very supportive.
I'm afraid I'm going to have to be classed as a scum bucket and proud of it.
